Stone Valley Festival was a blast! 

June 29th saw us hit our third festival of the year after Nice n Sleazy and Party In The Park and this time we had the honour of opening up the rapidly growing Stone Valley festival in Stanhope, Co. Durham. 

Stunning weather made the event extra special but it was fabulous to see so many people turn out for our 6.30pm opening slot to pretty much fill the tent at one point and we thoroughly enjoyed the occasion and hope to be back - Nice to see our original stuff be well received as well. Big thanks to Paul ,John & the Stone Valley team. 

A few pics tell the story anyway LOL

THE BEAT FT.DAVE WAKELING & THE SKAPONES AT THE O2 NEWCASTLE! 

We had a fabulous time at the O2 Academy Newcastle on may 29th as support to Dave Wakeling's The Beat. Also in support were ska juggernaut Bombskare from Scotland.

Great crowd, nicely packed- we had  a great reception and a favourable review in the Northern Echo!

at the end of a  great Beat set, Dave invited a couple of Skapones onstage for a rendition of ranking Full Stop/Mirror In the Bathroom - see video attached here.

It was a great nice of ska and reggae and great to be back at the Academy.

Cheers to Dave & Sean at Mad Management London for booking us!
